  • Nice boat trip. Guide was very good but not really the overview of the city I was expecting.

  • It was good.

  • wunderschön und gut organisiert nur der reiseführer hätte mehr auf die touristen eingehen können.viele sprachen sprechen ist ein vorteil ,wenn man nicht alle sprachen gleichzeitig spricht!

  • It was very a wonderful tour, we were able to visit all places that were offered for this tour, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and took good care of us.

  • It was good and well managed tour. : will recommend.

  • Good value, but a little strange that we were collected from our hotel, then driven a few kms to another meeting point, then back to near our hotel...45 mins later for the tour. Not sure it was necessary.
    Bosphorus cruise was pleasant.

  • good experience, but sad we could not visit the egyptian bazar because of Aid celebration. Only issue : we can hardly hear we the guide peak on the boat and miss interesting info. However,his level of French was very good.

  • It was good, it just seemed really rushed and chaotic and I couldn't hear anything while on the tour of the Bosphorus.

  • It was good. The tour guide spoke more Spanish than English

  • Good value. Guide was reasonably well-informed though he recommended spending some time at Taksim Square (the actual ending point of the tour) which proved to offer very little. Boat ride was fun. Bus tour of Golden Horn informational. The highlight, however, was the stop at the spice market!
